ABSTRACT
This article discusses pro-labor appointments made by U.S. President Barack Obama and pro-labor executive orders and legislation signed by President Obama during the first 100 days of his administration. Information about the rights afforded labor under the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is presented. The Ledbetter case involved a woman supervisor being paid lees than all the other males in similar positions with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. An examination of President Obama's pro-labor executive orders is presented. The executive orders involve changes in the way the government does business with federal contractors.
